Sounds like you're just viewing the audio portion of a video that your Media Player can't read. Either that or the video is corrupted in some form or another. It may also be possible you're not on a current version of the player.

If you're on WinXP, go to your "my documents" folder, click on "my music" and play one of the default songs. Do you get the same green/pink screen? Does it move around like a lava lamp?

You may need a different codec like DivX.

Short for compressor/decompressor, a codec is any technology for compressing and decompressing data. Codecs can be implemented in software, hardware, or a combination of both. Some popular codecs for computer video include MPEG, Indeo and Cinepak.

Well, you're not helping at all. You need to be more specific and tell more information.
1) What Operating system are you using? What version of Media Player are you using?
2)Are you using windows media player?
3) Do you have a current version of anti-virus?
4)Do you have a current version of some type of spyware scan?
5)Do you update them weekly?
6)Were you able to watch videos prior to xx/xx date?
7)Did you download new software that might have corrupted or took the default place of media player?

These are the questions you need to ask yourself, as well as, have an answer, before anything can be figured out.

Do you have a previously downloaded video from here or any other site that you have saved and can open? Try that and let me know what happens.

John is giving good advice. We're basically trying to figure out if it's the video that won't play right, or if it's your system that won't play the video right. Try to play a different video to make sure it still works.

Thank you sir. We need to ask question before we can find an answer. Without 'em it's mighty hard to diagnose from where I sit.

Try this:

Click on your drop down arrow, just to the left of your minimize button. Click on "tools" then click "options". Go over to the tab labeled "file types" and click it. Are all the default file checked? Every one of them should be checked.

Next, go over to the next tab over - "network". Make sure the 4 types of protocols are checked, these are: multicast, UDP, TCP, HTTP.

Try that and see how it works. Have you done a recent scan for Spyware?

From Microsoft: What can I do about video problems (such as if green or pink lines appear on the video, flickering or choppy video, the Player stops responding when playing video, and so on)?
